the rest of the weekend. tomorrow it's in the 20s and teens to start you out and then it will get milder as the afternoon goes on. some flurries could be possible especially to our northwest before noontime. and we could see that early in the afternoon too. i don't think we'll see too much flurry activity in the city as the day goes on because highs will get to around 40 degrees. sunday and monday the mild air comes in. temperatures much easier to take. we're looking at 50s on both of those days and i think monday we'll be flirting with 60 and then tuesday that's our next chance of rain. that comes in to the pick which are. so a pretty quiet next couple of days. here's a look at the temperatures, though. nothing easy to take here. especially mount pocono. 16 degrees that's the actual air temperatures. 21 in allentown. we had 32 in philly and look at wildwood even coming in at 27. clouds are starting to move in but it's really not doing much to protect the temperatures. they're still falling and look at these wind chills. it feels nine right now in mount
peck know. 25 in philadelphia. so it is going to be a bitterly cold start to your saturday morning. if you are headed out early, just keep in mind you'll really need to bundle up. winds right now are still coming out of the northwest. they're going to start to shift to the south overnight and that will eventually bring in some milder air. so we got that southerly flow by tomorrow afternoon. unfortunately, we're going to keep the clouds around. they're starting to roll in already. this is associated with a warm front pushing into our area. so the clouds are coming in. it doesn't do too much to act like a blanket and keep those temperatures up there tonight because the temperatures will still fall. but we're going to keep those clouds around really through tomorrow. so we're not looking at much in terms of precip again we could see a little bit of flurry activity out to our north and west. other than that, it's just a mostly cloudy and cold day. so here's a look at your forecast for tomorrow. we should make it up to 41 degrees for the afternoon
high. winds will be coming out of the south and that will make all the difference by sunday and especially by monday. so it's a mini warmup temperatures actually near normal on sunday we should be around 51 for this time of the year and then above normal feels really great monday, 57 degrees. >> that will feel pretty good after this cold. thanks a lot. >> the flyers might need a little warmup as well. keith russell is here to tell us why. (laughter). >> iain i don't see one coming any time soon. the flyers get booed out of their own building a day after the eagles gave us a holiday to remember. if only the cowboys showed this much fight on the field. you won't believe what they're much fight on the field. you won't believe what they're complaining about now
